I was 9 years old and my parents let us stay up past our bedtime to watch Armstrong walk on the Moon. I remember it as if it was yesterday.
RIP Neil Armstrong: And Thank You...You inspired a a whole generation to dream and reach for the Stars.
"I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don't intend to waste any of mine." -Neil Armstrong
Memo to the GOP. Reaching the Moon came from a society that respected science and a system that featured science as one of the centerpieces of a free public education.

Same here. I remember when the landing craft touched down it was a tense moment because I thought it might sink in the moon dust. When Armstrong got out, I thought it still might happen. (Not sure what my reasoning was. The pressure of a man would be the straw on the lunar camel's back? My dad was building up the drama for us?)
